Double Your Impact with our $18,000 Local Community Match Opportunity!


Thanks to the efforts of our dedicated walkers and teams, we’re well on our way to meeting our overall fundraising goal of $1 million for this year’s Greater New England Walks, but we still need your help!

Double your impact! Gifts will be matched dollar for dollar for 48 hours up to $18,000!

Here’s some tips to help with your fundraising:

  • Send that third reminder email to those who have not yet given to your Walk campaign.
  • Make a self-donation.
  • Don’t forget to share your WHY! Tell your network your personal reason for wanting a world without T1D. Use the prewritten messages below or customize your own.
    • Email: This year I am participating in the Breakthrough T1D One Walk! I am committed to driving further research progress and changing the lives of those impacted by type 1 diabetes (T1D) until we all live in a world without it.  Thanks to the generosity of several families in our chapter community, all online gifts made from now until Friday, October 6 at noon will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $18,000. That’s right, $25 becomes $50, and $100 becomes $200! Please double the value of your gift by donating today! Simply visit [personal or team page]. Any amount, great or small, helps to fund research for new treatments that will make living with T1D easier and healthier—until there is a cure. Thank you for your time and consideration.
